We represent both financial institutions and other lenders and borrowers in public and private debt financings, both to fund transactions, as well to fulfil ongoing company capital needs. Our practice includes senior, bridge and mezzanine financing, secured transactions, securitizations and real estate financing.
We also provide legal counsel to issuers, underwriters, buyers, and sellers of securities in the full range of securities offerings, corporate financing transactions, business combinations, and other transactions. These transactions run the gamut from traditional public offerings and private placements to shelf offerings, hedge fund formation and crowd-funding. On an ongoing basis, we represent small public companies and their officers, directors, and significant shareholders on all aspects of their compliance with Canadian Securities Commission and stock exchange requirements, shareholder communications, and other regulatory compliance matters.
